Jerry was shot three times in the face and killed. His nineteen year old son was also found in the home that morning with a gunshot wound to his left arm. After he was taken to a hospital and treated for the wound, he was taken in to custody and charged with murder. Police said they believe the younger Mahoney shot himself to make his father's slaying look like the work of an intruder. Jerry was with the agency for twenty six years.
